Florida Heartland

By Jeff Rich

Artist: Brian McSwain

Project: The Florida Heartland

Description: In The Florida Heartland, Brian McSwain captures the backroads of a six-county region in south-central Florida, focusing on scenes and objects that are broken or abandoned: a deserted juice stand; a fractured statue; a tilted, net-less basketball goal.


Brian McSwain is from New Orleans, Louisiana. Since 2014, most of his work has focused on the Florida Heartland. View his portfolio at www.brianmcswain.com
